and virginia is the big exception to this because they are the ones as john pointed out that established religious freedom, separation of church and state and so forth. if you look at these stasis constitutions and i don't have a political ax to grind, but it fascinates me that almost all of them have very, very specific religious christian, if not protestant qualifications for holding office so you have pennsylvania, for example, the most radical democratic constitution of them all, and in order to serve the government in pennsylvania, you have to uphold the devine inspiration of the old and new testaments. you know, you have to believe in a god. vermont is the one i love. 177 # -- 1776 constitution of the independence of vermont, now this bashing of liberalism, upholds the idea all people serving in government must believe in the inspiration of the devine old and new testaments, obey the sabbath, and be a protestant, catholics, jews, forget about it. they can't serve in government. it's referred to as a federalist argument; right? at what -- did the constitution leave religion out beca

the republicans, the big businessmen of tombstone in the area who wanted law-and-order to be firmly in place. this because they thought that was the best way to attract outside investors. at the same time a lot of the small ranchers who were not just represented by the clintons and the macquarie's, many southerners who had migrated west. wanting to get away from what they considered government oppression to be free to live their own lives as they chose. and we simply swiss the political parties arrive today. you can see that that beans remain with us as well as some of the ethnic prejudices. >> it may seem strange, but in reading this book something struck me that also struck me in reading your bonnie and clyde book. not just that it is about people, which it is, which makes it fascinating reading. family values play a big role in relationships play a big role in what occurs. i wonder if you could sort of draw out some of their relationships that occurred, what the family manse in this story. people sometimes forget that the gun fight actually involve three sets of brothers. and what that ad
